Ford claims its trucks are built to be tough, but things do not always work out as planned. When Ford introduced the 6.0-liter version of its Power Stroke engine, reviewers and buyers were at first impressed by the performance and efficiency figures.
Unfortunately, it soon became clear that a number of design flaws were undermining the reliability of the new power plant. Aftermarket parts company bulletproof diesel, however, has introduced a package that contains all the components needed to address the full range of these problems.
A Kit Ford Truck Owners Will Want to Buy and Install
Despite its issues, the 6.0 liter Power Stroke has gone on to become one of Ford’s best selling engines of all time. That has left many hundreds of thousands of Ford trucks laboring under the lack of reliability that has burdened the 6.0-liter Power Stroke since the beginning.
Since the underlying problems have long since been identified, however, relief awaits any Ford truck owner who seeks it. The Fully Bulletproof Diesel Package designed for the 6.0-liter Power Stroke includes upgraded parts such as:
Exhaust gas cooler. Like many modern diesel engines, the 6.0-liter Power Stroke includes an exhaust gas recycling system. Instead of being emitted directly into the surrounding air, the exhaust produced by the engine is returned for another round of combustion. This cuts down on harmful emissions by allowing more of the energy-laden chemicals within diesel fuel to be converted into useful work. In order to achieve this, though, the exhaust first needs to be cooled so as to keep the air within each cylinder as dense as possible.
Relocated oil filter. One of the most perplexing things about the 6.0-liter Power Stroke’s design is how it puts the oil filter in such close proximity to sources of intense heat. That can easily lead to clogging and all the associated problems, as many Ford truck owners have personally discovered. The bulletproof 6.0 package includes a replacement oil filter and all the hardware needed to mount it remotely.
A Better, More Reliable Ford
Replacement parts like these and others can help make certain Ford trucks far more reliable and enjoyable to own. While not every Ford equipped with a 6.0 liter Power Stroke suffers design-related problems, enough do that taking action will rarely be wasted effort. As the upgrade kit is easy to obtain and install, many Ford drivers will do well to consider purchasing it.
